More and more children have to contend with pressure, expectations, and hectic schedules as part of today's society and yet they may not always have the tools to cope. Some kids are naturally more sensitive to pressure or external stimulus than others. Recent studies into mindfulness show that these techniques can increase optimism and happiness in the classroom and at home, decrease bullying and aggression, increase compassion and empathy for others and help kids resolve conflicts independently.
This mindfulness based workshop will explore techniques from yoga, meditation, brain gym, and breathing exercises to give kids a range of tools to calm down, slow down and feel better when they are troubled.
Suitable for children ages 5-12 years. $15 per child.
